The Nest Pop-up: Giant Fort Building


Last day to play with various materials to make a nest (aka a giant fort) for a huge imaginary creature that is coming to Santa Cruz! 

Join theatre artist, Megan Flød Johnson all week (6/24-6/30) to build a giant home for an illusive, migrating creature making its home in the museum. This immersive installation invites visitors to co-construct a space and story about the creature’s identity using creative play, storytelling, movement and art-making to solve the mystery of the creature’s identity. 

Imagine for a moment that an unknown mythical creature has come to your town. A creature! You don’t know anything about this newcomer except that it’s shy and it needs your help. What is the creature’s identity? Where did it come from? What does it want? How would you welcome this unique visitor to help them feel at home? Find out at Sunday Play day!!!

The nest will stay up in the Garden Room through Friday, June 29th. Come back to check it out all week and attend a related event on Friday, June 29th with the artists: Film Screening and Art Making
